    Walden FNP has a Facebook page where you can talk with current students there. I cannot post a direct link due to TOS, but just do a search there for it.

    Hello,
    My name is Tammie. I am starting my 3rd quarter in the MSN-FNP program at Walden on June 3rd. I work 3-4 12hr shifts and have a PRN job. I have a 18 y/o boy and a 10 y/o girl. It can get crazy, but it is possible to work and go to school full time. I will start my clinical/practicum in December and have decided to try one class at a time then. My email is tcabassa73@gmail.com

    You will enjoy the program. I was pleasantly surprised. I wish I had started this years ago.

    You heard wrong
    Not untrue..I looked at this school (because I was considering doing the FNP with a friend) and she lives in a bordering state. They sent me a paper to sign that stated that if I did my clinicals in my home state that I may not be able to apply for licensure and they were not approved by the BON in my state.

    In fact, the rep told me the application was "pending" so I called the BON and found out that they had never even APPLIED.

    Needless to say, I dropped Walden like a hot potato.

    Help! I am in the second class of the Walden FNP program. I am having a lot of trouble staying focused, motivated, and disciplined. I feel so isolated and need a buddy or group to bond with. I am looking for a student in the program who I can communicate with outside of class. I am hoping to create some kind of accountability/support and/or a study or review partner/group. I have been considering the UOP program since it's brick & mortar. However, I would not be able to keep my two jobs if I attend UOP and that would definitely be a setback. So, my plan is to find another student to work with and make this program a little more interactive. Anyone interested please let me know!
    Thanks

    I am an WALDEN student in the MSN/FNP program. I absolutely love it, I work 3-12 hour shifts, no kids right now and I have a FT boyfriend, I have lots of time for myself as well. I spoke with my advisor about a week ago and she said that they have students on a waiting list and I better be glad that I was accepted, she's really nice, she calls me just to check on me. I know of no other school who does this. I am glad I have my spot. I plan on becoming a nurse pract. preceptor when I graduate school that wont be until December of 2014 though. You can take one clinical class however you can also take two clinical classes, I'm gonna take 2 so that I can get it done in December I have 7 classes left. it only my second quarter, that's another factor in applying for NP programs. do you like semester or quarter, WALDEN is on quarters, 3 months a quarter, I like this because some of the classes are boring and you finish them faster

    I had looked into both these a few years back but was under the impression, at least then, that they were not approved programs. Does this differ from state to state or are they more accepted now than they used to be? I was in Texas then, but am in Maine now.

    Call the BON in Augusta and ask. Frontier is approved in this state - I just had a friend graduate from that program. Not sure about Walden or Kaplan. There are a couple of FNP programs in Maine, and I decided to attend one of those vs online. Finished my BSN online but decided to go with the program that found preceptors for me!!!

    Hi Ron
    The CA BRN emailed me back when I asked them if Walden University is an approved online program for pursuing MSN for NP. They said "We do not accredit out of state/out of country schools." Also, after much research into the subject of approval vs. accreditation by our state of CA, I found out that if a program is accredited by the CCNE (meaning you can take the National Certification after graduation), and the program conforms to the CA Standards of Education (CCR 1484), and you hold a CA license, you will meet application requirements for NP certification by the BRN to practice in CA. I found this info on www.nursing-school-degrees.com/States/California-nurse-practictioner.html. Check it out. Hope all this helps you.
